Charatan Special (First Lane Era, 1961-1965) Extra Large Pear with Replacement Tenon Estate PipeItem # EE194355
Not just large in scale, or featuring a capacious chamber, this Charatan Special estate pipe has a replaced tenon of delrin for a snug fit and a smooth, easy draw. Far too long and a bit too heavy to clench throughout the smoking session, this beautifully smooth finished briar is well insulated around a slightly conical chamber with a perfectly drilled draft. The double comfort stem's button still has a crisp edge and the older nomenclature is still in excellent shape. There is some rim darkening, but this long, round shanked smoker continues to be an armchair favorite in search of many more generations to offer the joyous and satisfying smokes it was intended for.
